Reckless or Feckless Musings

The default or (as far as we're aware) unanticipated purpose of the universe may simply be to expand and increase its propensity for the creation of undirected or self-directed purposefulness.  
But, paradoxically, might we then anticipate the proliferation of separately purposeful mechanisms to arrive at a stage where their cross-purposes come into serious play - and hence the necessity for mutually recognized strategic directives? 
And should we then expect or at least hope for a further stage to be a largely cooperative universe consisting of the ultimate in superorganisms?
And if we aren't anywhere near this stage in this wee corner of the cosmos, can't we still presume that such supremo organisms already exist in other corners, given the endlessness of space and time?
